I have an aquarium set outside, unfortunately, some mosquito's are using it as a nursery. The chance to take these photo's is worth the stings though.
No idea of the species, or which developmental stage. Would be curious, if somebody happens to know. North-west of Europe.

100MP photo (Don't worry it is less than 1MB I compressed it)
Stacked and stitched

4x objective, but condensor flip up lens still engaged
Stitching is getting easier now that photoshop selection tools are getting more AI based, though it can still be such a finicky proces. I just want to drop my files, and have the magic happen for me. I'm always having to select the black areas and turn them transparent. No such programs yet, right? Or ones that stack and stitch at the same time? I guess I will get faster with time.
Lovely to get into contact with insects in such detail.
